So as I said yesterday, I really enjoyed thinking of things to send my swap partner Sarah. It is quite fun trying to imagine what someone would like to receive in the post. Firstly I thought of flat things. Tracy had had the wonderful idea of restricting ourselves to an A4 envelope. Very sensible. So I send little Rudolf Reindeer in a flat envelope. I hope he was easy to put together – there were no instructions.
I also cheated a little and sent a copy of this wonderful angel which a friend of mine made last year and reminded me of Little B. When he saw it he declared, ‘That angel looks like he is in the War!’ I assume that he means that it has a nice pudding bowl haircut, reminiscent of the 1940′s and not a ‘combat’ angel, but we will never know.
I sent a cheeky wee birdy robin. Which once I had finished, I felt I could hardly bare to let him go – but that is usually a good marker of an excellent pressie.
I popped a little pincushion in, which I find really useful.
Then this years total Christmas pressie hit. The Todhunter fingerless mittens. Brilliant! Glamourous purple with a small accent country style ribbon.
